Great crust – I love pizza antica! The crust is like no other pizza I've ever had. I'm on a diet so try not to eat it so much--- but when I crave pizza I will go nowhere else.
#1 European style pizza in East Bay – Great flavor and the crust is perfect! Thin and crispy like a cracker. Service and seating were a bit slow, but it was crowded. The flavors were bold and truly surprising. The potato pizza was out of this world. A bit noisy but it is a pizza joint! Great for families and this is my #1 pizza restaurant.
Great Pizza – Great European style pizza, good flavor and taste. Little slow in service but the food definitely makes up for it.
Staff is friendly and ambiance is a bit noisy but what the heck it's a pizza joint.
Nice atmosphere. Decent food. – Nice ambiance if a bit noisy inside. Better to eat outside if the temp is ok.
Service is average even on a Sunday night with 25% occupancy. But food is good and reasonably priced for Lafayette/WC area. Once our order was taken and the dirty glassware replaced, food arrived reasonably quickly. Place needs table cloths as the tables were sticky. We asked for additional cloth napkins to use as a table cloth.
Thin crust pizza was good. Had the fig/proscuitto and the calabrese sausage. Nothing to die for, but tasty enough.
Good wine list, if a bit pricey. Could definitely use more tap beer selection.
All in all, a pleasant place to eat. Not outstanding, but decent enough for those not in a hurry. One of the nicer places to have a decent pizza or basic italian fare. Not the typical pizza joint with cheesy (excuse the pun) decor.
I'd recommend it with the caveats I mentioned in mind.
Anyone expecting "outstanding" food will be disappointed and anyone suggesting the food is outstanding simply doesn't know what good food is. I'd give it an 7.5 out of 10 which is quite good for what it is.
Thin and wonderful – Fantastic thin crust pizzas. Love the tastes, aromas. Could use much more cheese on the margerita pizza. Otherwize, fantastic
Great thin crust! – The food here is really delicious, but it takes quite a bit to time to be served. Also, if you come at lunch or dinner peak hours, you may have to wait a long time to be seated. The atmosphere is very nice and relaxing, as you have the option to sit inside or out. The servers are knowledgeable about the food, but sometimes run a little slow when you need a refill or request something extra. Overall I would recommend this place if you are looking for a good thin crust pizza.
Customer service needs improvement. – The food was decent but over priced for the quality, the atmosphere good, but the service was disappointing. Too many employees, too little service. We had to request items multiple times and our waitor disppeared several times through out the night.
Fantastic Pizza & Salad! – Stopped by for a quick, casual dinner and was so pleased with our dining experience. We had the Spicy Caprese Sausage Pizza, Broccoli & Pancetta Pizza and the Mixed Green Salad with Piadini. ALL were FANTASTIC! If you've been wondering if this place is worth the visit, go on in. You won't be disappointed!
Great food in the East Bay!! – Actually, maybe I'm a little biased, because I go here all the time. I absolutely love the food. You can't beat the thin crust pizzas... but I would really recommend the Pork Chop. The menu changes every few months, so they may have different things from time to time. I don't know what the last reviewer was talking about, but to me, the Calamari is the best thing on the menu... I guess they were expecting battered and deep fried. I have to admit that at times the service isn't great, and since they don't take reservations, the wait can be long, but it's definitely worth it.
Scrumptious and Savory Fare – I have experienced one impressive meal after another at Pizza Antica. The name may be a bit deceiving because Pizza Antica offers many selections other than their delectable thin crust pizza.
The last time I ate there, my boyfriend and I fell in love with the herb roasted chicken over white beans and the pan seared leg of lamb with great wines offered by the glass that did not break our wallet.
The noise level was quite high due to the abundance of people, the restaurant itself is very stylish with all black and white interior and big windowed doors looking onto a landscaped patio with white umbrellas and bistro tables.
We ate our meal in about one hour (salad, entree and coffee), leaving completely satisfied and spending less than $50.
